Care and Cleaning of Manik Ruby Gemstone
The ruby is actually very closely related to the sapphire, both being part of the corundum family. They are both made of the same mineral, but they have of course, different colors. The ruby is a little softer than the sapphire, which may seem strange as they are both made of the same mineral. Since rubies are hard and durable, they are easy to care for. However, it is not recommended to wear a ruby if you are doing any sort of rough work or are using harsh chemicals. Rubies should be stored in a fabric-lined box, away from other pieces of jewelry, as they may scratch other, softer gemstones. When it is time to clean them, you can use soapy water and a brush, or a commercial jewelry cleanser. It is important to rinse the stone thoroughly and dry it, after cleaning it. If you take care of your ruby, it will stay with you, and retain its beauty for many years to come.
